ATLANTA – The DeKalb County Operations Committee (OPS) has called a special meeting regarding voter registration and elections. The ACLU of Georgia will present its program for recruiting county deputy county registrars. The ACLU of Georgia is conducting a similar program in Fulton County. On Election Day, when a Fulton voter who has requested an absentee ballot arrives at a polling location intending to vote in person, it will be the responsibility of the DeKalb County Deputy Registrar stationed at each DeKalb polling location to cancel that absentee ballot directly through the county election software. This new process will drastically reduce wait times for DeKalb County voters.

“The ACLU of Georgia is invested in ensuring that DeKalb voters can access the ballot without undue hardship in this important elections cycle,” said Christopher Bruce, Political Director of the ACLU of Georgia. “We look forward to discussing ways in which DeKalb voters can be further supported with DeKalb County Commissioners and officials.”
